    Anytime you met Lynn you would always get a “Hi, How’s it going” accompanied with that little smile. He was always upbeat and willing to have some fun and laughs. We have very fond memories of good times at the lake. You always got the impression from him that he wanted the best for everyone. It just seems that the best ones are taken too soon. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Kim, Tracy and Brett.

  • Neil and Wanda Mehrer says:

    Kim & family, I’m so sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. We grew up together, birthday parties, ponies, pedal bikes, & school. As we grew up, we had common friends and activities, often playing pool at his house. I remember his first car was a faded (to pink) Volkswagen. Then, as school ended, he moved to Saskatoon eventually going into business there. We saw each other occasionally when he came home and the odd time in Saskatoon. Lynn was always Lynn, a good friend, not one who could be bought or sold. One who will be always remembered by me. I am deeply touched by his passing and our thoughts and prayers will be with you and the family. Neil and Wanda

  • Laura Coleman says:

    I am so sorry that you have lost your dad so young. My earliest memory of him was when I was a very small child and he came out to the farm for a visit. I was coloring and I asked if he wanted to color too. He was so sweet. He crouched down and colored a purple tutu on a dancer before he made an excuse to leave me. Sorry we can’t make it to the memorial.

  • Monica says:

    Yes, Lynn died too soon. Death like an enemy chases after us and how sad it is when our loved ones are overtaken. Take courage, God is in control, he has the victory over death (Isaiah 26:19). Our loved ones who are powerless in death, he promises that he will bring back to life. The patriarch Job pondered over life and asked “if an able-bodied man dies can he live again?”. The reassuring answer is ‘yes’. (Job 14:13-15). When God calls the dead will answer. May you be comforted by God’s guaranteed promises and by the memories of Lynn that you will always cherish.

    Kim, Tracey, Brett,

    I am so so sorry. What an amazing man. I have so many wonderful memories from growing up with you Trace. I felt as close to your family as I did my own through those important younger years we shared.

    Love you all….


  • Kathryn Klassen says:

    Kim, I am so sorry to hear about Lynn’s passing. We had been away and didn’t hear until just now. Lynn was a great friend to my dad and I am so pleased that they were able to reconnect these past few years. My thoughts will be with your family during this difficult time.
